Time For a Change

Thank you to all that 
are here on the soup,
you have helped me so 
much and have been a great group.

I have taken all your comments
and kind words to heart,
now it is up to me,to
make a fresh start.

It's time for me to reach
out and seek GOD'S hand,
listen closely to his words,
and try to understand.

I know I can't change,
unless I put up a fight,
it is now time for me,
to make things right.

Every morning I wake,
I will reach for a goal,
say a prayer,
and cleanse my soul.

Don't think I didn't listen,to
all the advise you gave to me,
I know that love and prayer,
will be what sets me free.


                         YOUR SOUPER FRIEND

    I heard John Astin sing a song today in church; "No wave ever leaves the ocean; nothing that arises ever escapes the sea; there can be no returning to what we've always been." The imagery reminds us that even when we seem to wander off, or forget, or deny, or resist, the essential truth of our being is that we are a wave in the Great Ocean of God's Love. I find that comforting. This is a beautiful poem Colleen. You've turned your gaze back to Truth. Remember-Praise, Gratitude, Love, Compassion
